    COVID Stimulus and tax law changes, unemployment

    I've already filed owe money on my taxes this year. Do I still have to pay the dudes in black suits on April 15th?

    Bought a CR-V

    I used Gyeon Rim ceramic coating on the wheels and brake calipers of my ZL1. Even with the ridiculous amount of heat from tracking the car the brake dust, rubber, track grime, etc. rinsed right off with a pressure washer. Ceramic coating is great stuff!

    Turbo build

    Stock bearings are actually considered the best by most who build these engines. There are many reasons Hondas run for as long as they do, and one of them is the bearings. I'd run stock bearings if you can, make sure to use Plastigage and take your time to get the clearances dialed in. If you...

    q’s for d16z6 turbo build

    @awptickes is doing a d-series turbo build that should be there when it is done., check out his thread. You're going to need to do at least forged pistons, rods, rod bolts and head studs at a bare minimum. The sleeves should be fine at your power goal.

    All hail our fearless leader! But seriously, thanks for putting time into keeping this place running. It is one of the few (read: only) forums I can tolerate these days.

    Matt's s2k Build (Project Mess2k)

    My goal is to have the engine in this car more often than it's out. If I can accomplish that.. great success! I'll be putting the F20C back in for now. But when the time comes, running F20C long blocks are going for ~$3500.. more than enough to get me started on a K-Swap. I just have to make...

    It's all good. I bought someone else's project and knew there was a risk I'd have something like this happen. Part of the reason I got this car is to have a project to work on again, so I guess it is delivering in that aspect lol I managed to find a clean crankshaft, finally. This engine...

    Right? I can only imagine the smirk this guy must have right now.. lol The f20/f22c block is the same. The crankshaft, rods, pistons are different. I'll be going with an f20c rotating assembly merely because it's cheaper. The previous owner bought the car shortly after the engine had been...

    And here we see two more examples of why some people should never work on cars! Exhibit A: cigarette butt in the oil filter/factory oil cooler housing for twice the filtration! This is on the outlet side of the oil pump, so it'd almost have to be deliberately placed here. Exhibit B: old...

    I'm going to trade this DC header for a stock one. It looks/sounds like ass and the stock header is pretty stout on these cars. The .00005 hp I might gain from it is not worth the noise

    The PCV valve was recently replaced (I was told that by PO and it looks new..) but I haven't really looked at it yet. There might have been something wrong with the car but I really don't care. Even with $4k in a rebuild, I still feel like I got a decent deal on this car. I've been in contact...

    I'm not sure how this could've happened, but the dipstick had popped out and it seemed like oil was potentially pushing past the filler cap, which was tight. It was legitimately out of oil. It pushed it out somehow.. I need to further diagnose to see if I can figure out a cause.

    B-A-N-A-N-A-S So, we had a bit of a rough weekend.. all I'm going to say is it ran dry on oil and spun a bearing (not sure if main or rod, likely rod) engine ships out today to InlinePro for a fresh rebuild. I'd normally tackle this in my garage but I have a bit too much going right now...
